National Poetry Day: Give Him a Chance!




Hello dear friend,
Thank you for stopping by!

Today is National Poetry day so I took a look through my small collection to pick one out to share with you.

Also, though, my lovely friend Jan sadly lost her mum this morning... Yes, it's another one of those 'I don't quite believe it' moments.

For this reason I chose the poem below. And for this reason too I chose the photo above of an angel on a chariot which I took when visiting Rome with Jan some years ago. It seems fitting.


13th February 19 Despair
By Teresa O'Driscoll

What do you do when you’re in despair?
I turn to God ‘cos I know He’s there.

But what about you?
Do you know Him too?
If the answer is No
He’s still the place to go.

You don’t need fancy words
He’s heard them all before.
What He wants from you is a chance.
With me? You might ask. Yes, you!

Just speak from your heart
And tell Him your all –
The pain, the doubt, the fear.
Be open and trust
after all He is Love

And give Him that chance
to let you know He’s near.

And you will find that’s all you’ll ever need.

God bless,
Teresa x
